Key Questions That Destroys Saturday Observance.

The Keys That Completely Destroys A Saturday Sabbath.

Foreword.

The purpose of this article is to prove truth, I do not judge anyone who observes a Roman Saturday Sabbath, I have brethren and friends who do, I only hope and pray, they will diligently search the scriptures on this subject with an open mind.

Please be aware, that I only use the word “ Saturday” so I can communicate with everyone on this matter, I do not normally use this word in everyday usage as it violates Exodus 23:13; Joshua 23:7; Psalms 16:4. I will be using the R.N.O.K.J.V. of English translation of Scriptures( unless otherwise noted), and the Blue Letter Bible Online Strong’s Lexicon Concordance for those who do not understand the Hebrew and Greek words.

 

How many people today really believe this verse of Scripture below, and that YHWH would cause His Appointed Times H 4150 including His true Sabbaths to be forgotten? 

 

And he(YAH) hath violently taken away H2554 his tabernacle, H7900 as if it were of a garden: H1588 he hath destroyed H7843 his places of the assembly: H4150 ( Mow'eds-Appointed times) YHWH H3068 hath caused the solemn feasts H4150 (Mow'eds-Appointed times) and sabbaths H7676 to be forgotten H7911 in Zion, H6726 and hath despised H5006 in the indignation H2195 of his anger H639 the king H4428 and the priest. H3548 

Lamentations 2:6.

Most  Sabbath observers are aware of key scriptures in the Torah(law or instructions), the prophets, and the Disciples writings that prove a seventh day Sabbath observance, however, most Sabbath observers are not aware of all the key questions and Scriptures that will completely destroy a Saturday Sabbath observance. I have friends that observe a Saturday Sabbath, and embarrassing them is not my intention in this article either.

 

The religious world is asleep, totally unaware that today’s “ week ” is indeed a counterfeit of the Biblical week which is a lunar week. Almighty YHWH has revealed to me the key questions and key Scriptures that completely destroys a Saturday Sabbath. I became aware of this by studying out all the “holy convocation” days recorded in the Torah, and by realizing there are not three (3) holy convocation day(Sabbaths) during the Feast Of Tabernacles in the seventh lunar month. ( Why are they observing three holy convocation Sabbaths during the F.U.B. and during the F.O.T.? This will be answered shortly.).

 

I have written to many leaders about this issue in the Sacred Name, and or true name movements, and many are in utter disbelief, shocked, and cannot, or will not answer these key questions with Scriptures in which I’m about to reveal to you in this article. If you cannot prove your Sabbath from the Scriptures, on what or who’s authority do you have for observing that Sabbath?

 

Trying to prove a Saturday Sabbath is a lunar date used in the context of a lunar month in the Scriptures is impossible, because every identified date recorded in the Scriptures is used in the context of a lunar month and not a solar month. Most Saturday Sabbath observers are not aware, that today’s Roman planetary seven day week is a “solar only” calendar, which has 52 to 53 Saturdays  in a solar only based year. What does this mean for them?

 

This means that Saturday Sabbath observers are observing two (2) completely different calendars, the one calendar is YHWH’S, which is a lunar/solar calendar Genesis 1:14-19, and this is the only calendar that is sanctified by YHWH in the Torah and the prophets to observe YHWH’S “ Mow’eds” ( H 4150-Appointed times) both weekly and annually Leviticus 23:1-4; Psalms 104:19.

 

 

The second calendar Saturday Sabbath observers use is a man made “solar only” calendar invented by Rome, and therefore, a Saturday Sabbath is a “solar only calendar” date that cannot be found recorded in the Scriptures at all, and this is why they will have three Sabbaths during the F.U.B. and during the F.O.T. that is not recorded in the Scriptures at all.

 

There is another Scripture related to this subject that most people do not know. In Daniel 7:25 we are told of a prophecy.

 

And he shall speak H4449 great words H4406 against H6655 the most High, H5943 and shall wear out H1080 the saints H6922 of the most High, H5946 and think H5452 to change H8133 times H2166 and lawsH1882 and they shall be given H3052 into his hand H3028 until H5705 a time H5732 and times H5732 and the dividing H6387 of time. H5732

 

Let's look at word number H2166.  zĕman (Aramaic) From זְמָן (H2165) 1. a set time, time, season

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2166&t=KJV 

Gesenius's Lexicon  says directly this is speaking of " Holy Times, Feast Days", read the entry at the bottom of the above Blue Letter Bible address.

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2166&t=KJV 

 

Please also keep in mind this is the Aramaic word and meaning for the Feast Days. Now H2165 zĕman From זָמַן (H2163) 1.a set time, appointed time, time. 

 

Do you believe this Scripture and prophecy has happened? I tell you a truth, YAH'S  appointed times HAS BEEN CHANGED!

 

 

YHWH does not command us in His Torah nor the prophets to observe two different calendars in order to observe His Moeds(H4150-Appointed times) both weekly and yearly Leviticus 23:1-4.

 

 

Saturday Sabbath observers will use the “new moon” of the first lunar month Aviv to determine the 14th day Passover, and the 15th day feast; and the “new moon” of the seventh lunar month to determine the feast of Trumpets (day of shouting) and the feasts in the seventh lunar month, however, all the other days in all the other lunar months are ignored, and the Roman solar only calendar weeks are observed.

 

A Saturday Sabbath observer should be proving whether or not a scriptural seventh day Sabbath is being used in the context of a lunar month(H3391; H3394; H2318; H2320) or a “solar month”, and is the same space of time recorded in the Scriptures, however, to this day I have yet to see this proven 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

 

 

YHWH says through Isaiah the prophet, “ Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples… And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their Elohim? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. Isaiah 8:16-20.

 

 

YHWH says again through the prophet Isaiah, “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. But the word of YHWH was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. Isaiah 28:10-13.

 

Proverbs 4:13 says, “ Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.” Proverbs 6:23 says, “ For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:”

 

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “ All scripture is given by inspiration of Elohim, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of Elohim may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. “

 

 

Also, remember this in Proverbs 18:13. He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

 

End of foreword.

 

Questions A Saturday Sabbath Observer Should Answer.

 

1. Where in the Scriptures, does it say “Saturday” is the true seventh day Sabbath?

 

2. Where in the Scriptures, does it say the true Sabbath( seventh day) is an uninterrupted, unbroken, recurring cycle of seven days since the Creation?

 

3. From what lunar date do you determine the Biblical “six work days” in order to know when the Scriptural seventh day Sabbath begins in each lunar month in the Scriptures?

 

4. Where in the Scriptures, does it say that the true seventh day Sabbath is not  a “lunar date” determined by the moon( H3391;H3394), and from the “new moon”(H2318; H 2320) day of each month?

 

5. Where in the Scriptures, does it say the true seventh day Sabbath ever “falls” at all in a “lunar month“(H2318; H2320)?

 

6.Where in the Scriptures, is the seventh day Sabbath not on a fixed lunar date?

 

7. Where in the Scriptures, does it say that the true seventh day Sabbath is not one of the Almighty YHWH’S “Mow’eds”( H4150-appointed times), and is not determined by the new moon day?

 

8. Where in the Scriptures, does it say the true seventh day Sabbath is not a “holy convocation” day?

 

9. Where in the Scriptures, does a true seventh day Sabbath ever “fall” on the 10th, the 14th, or the 16th days of the first lunar month Aviv?

 

10. Where in the Scriptures, does it say the seventh day Sabbath is determined from a “solar month” or if any such thing even exists in the Scriptures?

 

11. Where in the Scriptures, is any identified date not a “lunar date” determined by the moon (H3391; H3394), and determined from the “new moon”(H2318; H2320) day?

 

12. Where in the Scriptures, does the Torah command three(3) holy convocation day(Sabbaths) during the Feast of Unleavened Bread ( Exodus 12:16; Leviticus 23:7-8; Numbers 28:17-25)?

 

13. Where in the Scriptures, does the Torah command three(3) holy convocation day( Sabbaths) during the Feast of Tabernacles ( Leviticus 23:34-39; Numbers 29:12-35; 2 Ch.7:8-10; Nehemiah 8:18)?

 

14. Will a Saturday Sabbath not fall on the 10th, the 14th, and the 16th days of the first lunar month at least once or more during a seven year period of time?

15. Prove from the Scriptures, that any Sabbath ever “falls” on a scriptural “six work day “period?

 

16. How can a “day” in the Scriptures be called “both” a “work day” and a “Sabbath day” on the one and the same day?

 

17. Can you prove from the Scriptures that Saturday is a “lunar date” used in a lunar calendar month(H2320;H2318; H3391; H3394) in the Scriptures?

 

18. Where in the Scriptures, does it say the true seventh day Sabbath is a “solar date” used in the context of a “solar month” if any such thing even exists in the Scriptures?

19. Where in the Torah or the prophets of Scriptures, are we commanded to observe two different calendars to observe YAH'S Holy convocation Moedim(Appointed times-H4150)?

 

20. Where in the Scriptures, does it say any "holy convocation day" is not a lunar date, and is not determined in a lunar month( H2318; H2320; H3391; H3394; G3376; G3561)?

 

I would dare to say, that most Saturday Sabbath observers have not studied, thought, nor prayed this through in the Sacred Scriptures, because every identified “date” in the Scriptures is a lunar date, and is used in the context of a lunar month determined by the moon (H3391; H3394), and determined from the new moon day (H2318; H2320), or the first day of each lunar month. Also, for anyone to say, the true seventh day Sabbath is not a lunar date used in the context of a lunar month (H2318; H2320) is to even deny the Scriptural seventh day Sabbath!

 

If you study out these Strong’s Hebrew and Greek word numbers H 3391; H 3394; H2318; H2320; G 3376; G3561, you will find that every identified date mentioned in the entirety of the Scriptures is speaking of a “lunar date” on a lunar monthly calendar, and it is a fact, today’s week and Saturday is a man made “solar only calendar date” that cannot be found recorded in the entire Scriptures! Boom, Saturday is doomed!

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G3561&t=KJV

 

Example one: I had a recent e-mail discussion with a minister at Y.R.M. when I told him that the Torah does not command three holy convocation day Sabbaths, and especially “back to back Sabbaths”( two days in a row) during the Feast Of Tabernacles. You can verify their “Moed calendar dates” for 2014 here below. http://www.yrm.org/calendar/

 

 

Here below is my first e-mail sent to Y.R.M.

 

E.C. “ The first day of F.O.T. this year 2014 begins from 10/9/2014 evening until 10/10/2014 evening, which corresponds from Thursday evening until Friday evening( ONE SABBATH), the weekly Sabbath is from 10/10/2014 evening until 10/11/2014 evening( SECOND SABBATH), which is from Friday evening until Saturday evening, and the "eighth day" begins from 10/16/2014 evening until 10/17/2014 evening( THIRD SABBATH), and this corresponds from Thursday evening until Friday evening, the 6th work day in today's week.  One Sabbath + One Sabbath + One Sabbath= 3 Sabbaths.

 

This is 3 Sabbaths occurring during this "eight day period" of the F.O.T. is it not? Also, there are "back to back" Sabbaths on the "first two days" of this eight day period. There are no supporting scriptures in the torah nor the prophets for 3 Sabbaths, nor back to back Sabbaths, during this "eight day period".

 

See Leviticus 23:34-36; Leviticus 23:39-41; 2 Chr. 7:9-10; Neh. 8:18. Also, Numbers 29 lists the entire holy days for the 'seventh lunar month, beginning with the new moon day feast of Trumpets'. Beginning at Numbers 29:12 through to verse 35 lists an entire week for 'the Feast of Tabernacles', there are not 3 Sabbaths being observed, and certainly not 'back to back Sabbaths' being observed, from the 15th day through the 22nd day of the scriptural seventh lunar month, there are only 2 Sabbaths being observed, one Sabbath on the 15th day, and one Sabbath on the 22nd day of the scriptural seventh lunar month.

 

Quote of scriptures: Numbers 29:12. And on the fifteenth day (15th day==1st DAY OF FEAST=A SABBATH) of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto YAH seven days (7 days):

 

Numbers 29:17. And on the second day=(2nd day=16th day of feast).

Numbers 29: 20. And on the third day=(3rd day=17th day of feast).

Numbers 29: 23. And on the fourth day=(4th day=18th day of feast).

Numbers 29: 26. And on the fifth day=(5th day=19th day of feast).

Numbers 29:29. And on the sixth day=(6th day=20th day of feast).

Numbers 29: 32. And on seventh day=(7th day=21st day=last day of feast of Tabernacles).

Numbers 29: 35. On the eighth day=(8th day=22nd day= A SABBATH).

 

From the 10/9/2014 evening until 10/10/2014 evening is the sixth day(6th day) in today's work week, and from the 10/16/2014 until 10/17/2014 evening is also the sixth day in today's work week.

 

Also, you can search the Hebrew Scriptures, and there is no “Holy Convocation day” that ever occurs (falls) during a “ work day week” in the recorded scriptures. Can you explain why these "Holy Convocation Days" is occurring(falling) in today’s work weeks?

 

Here below is the Blue Letter Bible Strong’s that lists every place of a “Holy convocation” and not one occurs on a workday, however, this is indeed happening in today’s work weeks.

Thanks, Yah bless.

E.C.  Unquote.

Here below are the calendar days of the seventh lunar month that corresponds to every Scriptural example given above, and even in every year that is recorded in the Scriptures.

 

 

N.M.

     1st( Trumpets)   2    3    4    5    6    7   8th   9   10th(Atonement)   11  12   13   14   15th( Both first day of feast and seventh day)  16  17  18  19  20  21st(last day of feast)  22nd (eighth day=seventh day Sabbath)  23  24  25  26  27  28  29th  30

 

 

 

Notice there are no “extra days” at the end of a lunar month, when there are 29 day(defective) months, you will go directly from the last seventh day Sabbath on the 29th to the next eighth month new moon day(1st day of the eighth month), and when there is a 30 day month, you will have two new moon days(or the new moon second) as is the case with David and Jonathon in 1 Samuel 20:5, 18, 24, 27, and 34.

 

Notice that the O.K.J.V. has 1 Samuel 20:27 and verse 34 “mistranslated”. How can you know this you may ask?

 

 

First, I will quote 1 Samuel 20:5, 18, and verse 24,

 

 

And David H1732 said H559 unto Jonathan, H3083 Behold, to morrow H4279 is the new moon, H2320 and I should not fail H3427 to sit H3427 with the king H4428 at meat: H398 but let me go, H7971 that I may hide H5641 myself in the field H7704 unto the third H7992 day at even. H6153 1 Samuel 20:5

Then Jonathan H3083 said H559 to David, H1732 To morrow H4279 is the new moon: H2320 and thou shalt be missed, H6485 because thy seat H4186 will be empty. H6485 1 Samuel 20:18.

 

 

So David H1732 hid H5641 himself in the field: H7704 and when the new moon H2320 was come, the king H4428 sat him down H3427 to eat H398 meat. H3899 1 Samuel 20:24.

http://www.blbclassic.org/search/translationResults.cfm?Criteria=new+moon&t=KJV

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2320&t=KJV

http://www.blbclassic.org/lang/lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2318&t=KJV

 

 

Now let’s do a “cross reference” of the word “month” in 1 Samuel 20:27, and verse 34.

 

 

And it came to pass on the morrow, H4283 which was the second H8145 day of the month, H2320 that David's H1732 place H4725 was empty: H6485 and Saul H7586 said H559 unto Jonathan H3083 his son, H1121 Wherefore cometh H935 not the son H1121 of Jesse H3448 to meat, H3899 neither yesterday, H8543 nor to day? H3117 1 Samuel 20:27.

 

This verse should read: And it came to pass on the morrow, the second day of the new moon, that David’s place was empty: and Saul said unto Jonathon his son. Wherefore cometh not the son of Jesse to meat, neither yesterday, nor today?

 

 

Now verse 34. So Jonathan H3083 arose H6965 from the table H7979 in fierce H2750 anger, H639 and did eat H398 no meat H3899 the second H8145 day H3117 of the month: H2320 for he was grieved H6087 for David, H1732 because his father H1 had done him shame. H3637 1 Samuel 20:34.

 

This verse should read: So Jonathon arose from the table in fierce anger, and did eat no meat the second day of new moon: for he was grieved for David, because his father had done him shame.

 

 

There is no doubt, the Hebrew literally says “ the second day of new moon” and not the second day of the month. David and Jonathon also knew, that there would be two new moon days ( day 30 and day 1) in advance, because he told Jonathon to come into the field on the third day to shoot the arrows.

Here below was Joel from Y.R.M e-mail response.

 

 

Quote “ Hello E.C.,

That is a great question; it looks like you have really studied this topic in great detail. Excellent job. As per your request I would like to give an explanation to our beliefs. We believe that there are weekly Sabbaths and annual Sabbaths, these being the High Days during the feast days. There is an instance mentioned in the Bible of a feast having three Sabbath's in it. When Yahshua died, as recorded in Mark 15:42, it says that it was the day before the Sabbath. Then in Mark 16:1 it says "when the Sabbath was past." This can mean two things, either he died on a Friday and was raised on either Saturday or Sunday, which would not be correct since Yahshua said that he would remain in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights, and would count for the one Sabbath that he was in the grave for the first High Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, or he died on the day before the first High Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread that was a Sabbath and then was raised three days later before the weekly Sabbath had ended. The first option would mean that there would have been only two Sabbath during this feast but would then contradict the Bible, but the second option has three Sabbath's during the feast and would match with the Bible.

Another point is that if the Holy Days are only to fall on weekly Sabbaths, then it will work for the Feast of Tabernacles since the 1st High day and the Last Great Day would fall on the same day, but it wouldn't work for the Feast of Unleavened Bread since the 7th day, which is a High Day, follows on the day previous to the 1st High Day the previous week. So even if the 1st High Day fell on a Saturday, then the 7th day would fall on a Friday. If both days would need to be on the weekly Sabbath then you would either have to move the day, but then it would go against the Bible, or keep the day as a Sabbath even though it may fall on a day that is normally the rest of the year as a work day.

 

 

We do the back to back Sabbath’s, or have an extra Sabbath within the feast days, for the reason THAT EVEN THOUGH IT MAY NOT BE SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE, we believe one must still observe it since we are commanded to obey the weekly Sabbaths. The reason for the High days sometimes falling on days that are not weekly Sabbaths is because the LUNAR MONTHS are determined as we believe by the sighting of the new moon. Since the New Moons don't always fall on the same day in the Gregorian calendar, then they float around on the month, thus why they sometimes will fall on a Monday or Wednesday.

 

I hope that I have answered your question with enough detail. Have a blessed day.

First, notice this statement of his, quote “ Since the New Moons don't always fall on the same day in the Gregorian calendar, then they float around on the month, thus why they sometimes will fall on a Monday or Wednesday. Unquote.

 

Ezekiel 46:1-3 says,

Thus saith the Master YHWH; The gate of the inner court  that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

 

 

Why is the east gate to be shut the six working days?  Because on the “six work days”  there is no assembly worship service at the Temple.

 

 

Why is the east gate opened on the Sabbath, and opened in the day of the new moon(first day of each month)?  Because on the Sabbaths, and the new moon days there is a commanded assembly worship service at the Temple. Temple gate closed shut on “ the six workdays” and the Temple gate is opened on the Sabbath, and on new moon days.

 

 

Question: How can the east gate be both opened and shut at the same space of time if a Sabbath falls on man‘s calendar workdays such as Monday or Wednesday? It cannot be, because workdays and Sabbaths are two different “types” of days, and this is the problem Joel is having above in his statement.

 

A “Sabbath day “ cannot “fall”(or be Both) on a “six workday” period in the Scriptures, because “new moon day” (1st day of month) cannot, will not  be on a “six workday” at all, and a “new moon day” cannot, will not ever be on a “seventh day Sabbath” either.

 

 

New moon day is one(1) type of day, the six workdays is the second(2nd) type of day, and the Sabbaths are a third(3rd) type of day, and each “type” of day cannot “fall” on the other “types” of days in the Scriptures.

 

The Roman/Gregorian solar only calendar, and its seven day week ONLY has two(2) "types" of days, which are "workdays" and Sabbaths" and this counterfeit "seven day week" IGNORES the Scriptural lunar "new moon" day(first day of each lunar month).

 

 

Now notice even though he admits, the Bible does not even mention three Sabbaths nor back to back Sabbaths in a row during the F.O.T. he still believes, and he is going to observe “that extra Sabbath” which is the Roman calendar planetary seventh day Saturday that cannot be found recorded anywhere in the lunar months of the Scriptures.

 

Also notice that he believes the lunar months (H2318; H2320) is determined by the sighting of the “new moon”(H2318;H2320).

You can read their calendar study here below. http://www.yrm.org/abccalendar.htm

 

 

Of course we also engaged in a conversation if there were three Sabbath holy convocation days during the F.U.B. and here below was his first initial e-mail response.

 

 

Quote “ Hello E.C.,

Sorry if I didn't explain it well enough. I should have put in the exact days as you had requested. So if he died on a Wednesday before sundown, then Wednesday sunset to Thursday sunset would be the 1st High Day for Unleavened Bread. This is the first Sabbath. He was raised three days and three nights later, making his resurrection on Saturday before sundown. This is the second Sabbath. Then counting out seven days from the 1st High Day, the 7th day would be from Tuesday sunset to Wednesday sunset, thus making it a third Sabbath.

 

I'm not sure what the word "chag" means, so hopefully I am answering your question correctly. In Leviticus 23:7-8 it says that the 1st day of the Feast of Unleavened bread is a holy day. In Leviticus 23:8 it says that the seventh day is also a holy day. Therefore counting it out means that there is a high day on the 15th and 21st days of the 1st month.

Have a blessed day,

Joel Wirl

 

 

Notice he first tries to prove three Sabbaths during Messiah’s death, burial, and resurrection. Then he quotes out the specific days as is laid out in Leviticus 23:7-8, which proves there are only two holy convocation day (Sabbaths) during the F.U.B. and in the next e-mail he counts out the specific days of the F.U.B.

 

Quote “ Hello E.C.,

Thank you for the questions and responses. They have helped clarify your beliefs to me. I know you haven't read the article yet as indicated below, although after reading your message below it may not be applicable to your beliefs, but I hope you will permit me to explain this one thing further about the counting of the days in the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Here is how we count it out:

15th day - 1st day of FUB

16th day - 2nd day of FUB

17th day - 3rd day of FUB

18th day - 4th day of FUB

19th day - 5th day of FUB

20th day - 6th day of FUB

21st day - 7th day of FUB

 

I hope that this clarifies some of your questions. I look forward to hearing your response regarding the article. Have a blessed day.

By this time he has realized, that he has proven himself in error, and I never received an answer to this last question I asked him- quote “ By the way, you still never answered this question: Where is there recorded in the Hebrew Scriptures of the Torah of 3 "holy convocation" day Shabbats being observed during the F.U.B.?

 

 

I’m still waiting for an answer to that question from Joel, however, I will probably never get that answer now, because he has embarrassed himself, and by disproving himself with his own words using the Scriptures.

 

Example number 2, I recently had a very “short e-mail discussion” with brother T.M. also known as EliYah when I wrote and told him that the Torah does NOT support three(3) holy convocation day(Shabbats) during the F.U.B. and here below was his response e-mail.

 

Quote: “ Shalom E.C.,

Whether or not it supports 3 depends on whether or not you believe the lunar dates are dynamic and can fall on various days of a recurring 7 day week.

Here below was my response e-mail back to him.

Greetings Brother Tom,

 

You wrote: " Whether or not it ( the Torah) supports 3 depends on whether or not you believe the lunar dates are dynamic and can fall on various days of a recurring 7 day week." Unquote.

 

I have some questions to this statement. Should it NOT be, that our belief should line up with what the Torah teaches?

 

Isaiah 8:20 says, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. "

 

Please show me in the scriptures, where YAH'S holy convocation days ever " fall" at all? Are YAH'S "Holy Convocation" days NOT His Moeds commanded by Him, and determined from the established "new moon" day?

 

Yah's holy convocation days are fixed in the lunar month, determined from the established "new moon" day. This is very evident in the scriptural fact, that the 10th and 14th days of the first lunar month Aviv are determined from the "new moon" day of every year that mentions their observance recorded in the Hebrew Scriptures. Or, otherwise, how do you determine the 14th day Passover, and the 15th day feast in the first lunar month Aviv every year? Even your own calendar study proves this to be true.

 

 

Quote: Yahweh set the greater light to rule the day. Yahweh set the lesser light to rule the night. Obviously this is the sun and the moon respectively. Yahweh set them to be signs for "seasons". This word 'seasons' comes from the Hebrew word "Moed" (Strong's #4150). Which is translated "feast" 23 times in the King James version. It literally means "Appointed time". In the scriptures, it is obvious that the 'lesser light' is to be used to determine the feasts of Yahweh. All throughout scripture, Yahweh uses the word that is translated 'month' which literally means "new moon" in Hebrew to determine the times of His feasts. (What we will be discussing later).

 

 

See your own calendar study here: http://eliyah.com/calendar.html

 

 

Now you show me, or yourself, where a "Holy convocation day" is NOT a Moed and is NOT a "lunar date" determined by the "new moon' and where the Torah commands 3 "holy convocation days' during the F.U.B. recorded anywhere in the scriptures?

Shalom, YAH Bless!

E.C. Unquote.

 

It would seem the questions in my last e-mail left him completely baffled, speechless, and this is because anyone who understands the Biblical Hebrew Scriptures knows that every one of YAH'S “identified set apart Moed dates” in the Scriptures is a “lunar date” determined by the moon( H3391;H3394), and determined from the new moon (H2318; H2320) day of every lunar month recorded in the Scriptures.

 

 

Also notice that he quotes Genesis 1:14 in pointing out that the word “seasons” is Strong’s H 4150-Moed, and there are two other places in the Scriptures that points out YHWH’S Moeds(H4150) that I will show you later.

 

Also, a study of the “holy convocation days” and on which “lunar dates” they are fixed to in the lunar months, the Torah of Scriptures deals a death blow to a Saturday Sabbath, because there are only two holy convocation day(Shabbats) during the Feast Of Unleavened Bread in the first lunar month(H2318;H2320), and only two holy convocation day(Shabbats) during the Feast Of Tabernacles in the seventh lunar month(H2318;H2320).

 

http://www.blbclassic.org/search/translationResults.cfm?Criteria=holy+convocation&t=KJV

 

 

Many Assemblies that observes the annual Feasts (H4150 Mow’eds) of YHWH( by the lunar calendar) and observes a Saturday Sabbath( by the Roman calendar week of Saturday ) will have three holy convocation day(Shabbats) during the F.U.B. and during the F.O.T. in which they are observing two different calendars, and the Torah does not command us to observe two different calendars, and three holy convocation day(Shabbats) during the F.U.B. nor during the F.O.T.

 

Even a casual study of the words ”moon” “month” and “new moon” reveals that every date mentioned in the Scriptures is determined by the moon(H3391: H3394), and determined from the new moon(H2318; H2320) day, and the Scriptural seventh day Sabbath is not an exception to this Scriptural fact as many assume.

I will only show two Scriptural examples of the first lunar month Aviv in a calendar format that proves( 1Thess.5:21) every day forward is determined from the “new moon” day in every year recorded in the Scriptures.

 

 

And YHWH spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: …And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. Exodus 12:1-6.

 

 

And YHWH spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season. In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it. And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover. And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that YHWH commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel. Numbers 9:1-5.

 

 

This is speaking of the 10th and 14th days of the first lunar month, and notice these two particular “days” are commanded work days by YHWH Himself, and could never be Sabbath days in any year.

 

 

N.M.

    1st  2   3   4   5   6   7  8   9   10th( lambs selected or purchased)  11  12  13  14th( Passover)  15th( Both Feast and seventh day Sabbath)  16th 17  18  19  20  21st( last day of feast) 22nd( seventh day Shabbat) 23  24

 

Also, the 16th day of the first lunar month is a commanded work day by YHWH Himself in Leviticus 23:10-14, these three (3) days could never be Sabbath days in the first lunar month, even in any year, and they never are either in the Scriptures. You will readily notice that these three “work days” are fixed in the first lunar month, and determined from the new moon(H2320) day, and in every Scriptural example that can even be found mentioning their observance in the Scriptures.

 

 

On the Roman/Gregorian calendar planetary week, the seventh day Saturday will indeed “fall” on the 10th, the 14th, and the 16th day of the first lunar month Aviv at least once or more during a seven year period, and with YHWH’S calendar(Genesis 1:14-19) this can never happen, because these three (3) work dates are fixed in the first lunar month, and determined from the established new moon (H2318; H2320) day. A commanded Sabbath day could never fall on a commanded work day in the Scriptures on a lunar calendar month that is determined by the moon.

 

 

Question: What happens when the man made Roman calendar Saturday Sabbath falls on a commanded workday like the 10th, the 14th, and the 16th day in the first lunar month Aviv of YHWH’S calendar Genesis 1:14-19??

 

There are no provisions in the Torah nor the prophets of Scriptures for this,  a commanded seventh day Sabbath can never "fall" on a commanded work day in the entirety of the Scriptures either, and a Saturday will fall on these days ! Boom, another death blow to a Saturday Sabbath!

 

 

All of YHWH’S “Holy convocation” days are His Mow’eds(H4150-appointed times), and all YAH'S “Holy convocation” days are determined by the moon(H3391; H3394) Psalms 104:19, and from the established new moon(H2318; H2320) day in every lunar calendar month.

 

And Elohim H430 said, H559 Let there be lights H3974 in the firmament H7549 of the heaven H8064 to divide H914 the day H3117 from the night; H3915 and let them be for signs, H226 and for seasons, H4150(Mow’eds) and for days, H3117 and years: H8141 And let them be for lights H3974 in the firmament H7549 of the heaven H8064 to give light H215 upon the earth: H776 and it was so. And Elohim H430 made H6213 two H8147 great H1419 lights; H3974 the greater H1419 light H3974 to rule H4475 the day, H3117 and the lesser H6996 light H3974 to rule H4475 the night: H3915 he made the stars H3556 also. Genesis 1:14-16.

 

 

Genesis 1:14-19 reveals that YHWH uses the two great lights, the sun and the moon for His calendar, and it is obvious that YHWH uses the moon, which is the lesser light to rule over the night, and to determine His months(H2318; H2320) and His Mow’eds( appointed times-H4150) in the heavens where man cannot tamper with it. A study of the Hebrew word number H4150 “ Mow’ed” is quite revealing.

Notice this word means “appointed place, appointed times- appointed meeting, to meet by appointment” and also “to fix, be fixed” and “to be set” sign, signal meetings. Of course men and animals have their “appointed times” in the Scriptures too, however, what is important to us, is YHWH’S appointed times, and how this relates to His calendar in the heavens Genesis 1:14-19.

 

 

Speak H1696 unto the children H1121 of Israel, H3478 and say H559 unto them, Concerning the feasts H4150 (appointed times) of YHWH, H3068 which ye shall proclaim H7121 to be holy H6944 convocations, H4744 even these are my feasts. H4150 (appointed times) Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of YHWH in all your dwellings. Leviticus 23:2-3.

 

 

We are told twice in these Scriptures above of the Torah, that the seventh day Sabbath is YHWH’S first “Mow’ed” and YHWH’S first “holy convocation” and Psalms 104:19 also verifies this fact of Scriptures.

 

Question: Why did YAH list His seventh day Sabbath as His first Moed(H4150) in Leviticus 23:1-4 along with His annually( or yearly) Moeidim? Because His weekly seventh day Sabbath Moeds are fixed on specific lunar dates, the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and the 29th days of each lunar month.

 

 

He(YAH) appointed H6213 the moon H3394 for seasons: H4150 ( Mow’eds-appointed times) the sun H8121 knoweth H3045 his going down. H3996 Psalms 104:19.

Is it any different in the Greek Scriptures? Not at all. A cross reference of the word “month” and “new moon” in Strong’s reveal that the new moon day is still being observed Colossians 2:16 of Strong’s Greek numbers G 3561 and G 3376.

Question: Did you see anywhere in any of these Scriptural definitions of a “solar month” even being used in the Scriptures?

 

 

Here below is how one certain " leader" reasoned, and my comments are in (parenthesis).

 

 

Quote " Or…is there any such thing as a Lunar Sabbath?

 

( If there is not, then why are you using the moon(H3391; H3394) to determine the fourteenth(14th) day Passover, and the fifteenth(15th) day Sabbath in the first lunar month(H2318; H2320) Aviv every year??

The answer is no.( Really?) Some have tried to devise a lunar sabbath theory in reaction so alleged ties to idolatry, or other extra-scriptural concepts, but all you need to have is a basic understanding of Yahweh's word, and you will be safe from unscriptural arguments.

 

Please allow my simple comments for your prayerful consideration. ( Your comments are not Scriptures either.)

 

Genesis 1: 3-5: DAY #1 of Creation = Moon does not exist.

 

( If not, then what is giving this light, when He said "let there be light" ? Did Elohim not first create-bara-H1254 the heavens and the earth? Did Elohim not create light(day) and darkness(night) on the first day? He says He did!)

Genesis 1: 6-8: DAY #2 of Creation = Moon does not exist(Yes it does, see Gen.1:1-5)

Genesis 1: 9-13 DAY #3 of Creation = Moon does not exist(Yes it does, see Gen.1:1-5.)

Genesis 1: 14-19 DAY #4 of Creation = Moon created [1st DAY]( These verses uses the Hebrew word "asah=made" not "bara"=created".).
Genesis 1: 20-23 DAY #5 of Creation = Moon [2nd DAY]
Genesis 1: 24-31 DAY #6 of Creation = Moon [3rd DAY]
Genesis 2:1-4 DAY #7 of Creation = SABBATH: Moon [4th DAY]Unquote.

(What is this person forgetting that happened first in Genesis 1?)

(How can there be a "DAY" and a "NIGHT" called " the first day" without the sun and the moon to mark this FIRST DAY?)

Let's quote the Scriptures themselves, and let's see which is correct, this man's comments or the Scriptures.

 

In the beginning Elohim CREATED(bara' H1254) the heavens and the earth. And the earth was(became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters. And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light. Genesis 1:1-3. So Elohim created the "heavens and the earth" and said "let there be light".

 

Question: What is this " source of light "? We are told next. " And Elohim saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim divided the light(day-sun) from the darkness(night-moon). And Elohim called the light Day(sun), and the darkness he called Night(moon and stars). And the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:4-5.

Now you tell me, was the sun and moon not "created-bara H1254" on the first day in the beginning? 

What source gives the " light " by Day? Of course the sun! What source gives the" light "by Night? Of course the moon and the stars!

 

This is indeed speaking of the two great lights and the stars in the heavens that was created(Bara-H1254) first along with the earth in the beginning. Genesis 1:1.

 http://www.blbclassic.org/search/translationResults.cfm?Criteria=Night&t=KJV

What else is this person forgetting in Genesis 1:14-19?

 

Both the sun and moon were "made- asah H6213" or worked upon or fashioned, appointed on the "fourth day". The Hebrew word "Bara-H1254" means to be "created"(past tense) from scratch or from nothing, and the Hebrew word "asah" H6213 means to work upon, made, appoint, or advanced upon.

This person is confusing the two Hebrew words " bara-created" used in Genesis 1:1 with the Hebrew word "asah-made" in Genesis 1:14-19.

Here below are the Scriptures themselves.

 

And Elohim said, Let there be lights(sun and moon) in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day(sun) from the night(moon); and let them(sun and moon) be for signs(owth-H226), and for seasons(Mow'eds-H4150), and for days, and years: And let them(sun and moon) be for lights(sun and moon) in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:14-15.

 

And Elohim made(asah-H 6213-past tense-see Gen.1:1-5) two great lights(sun and moon); the greater light(sun) to rule the day, and the lesser light(moon) to rule the night: he made the stars also. And Elohim set them(sun and moon) in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day(the sun) and over the night(the moon), and to divide the light from the darkness: and Elohim saw that it was good. Genesis 1:16-18. 

 

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Genesis 1:19. Both the sun and the moon were "asah-H6213-made, worked upon, appointed" on day four.

 

Compare both of these texts of Scriptures below.

And Elohim saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim divided the light(day-sun) from the darkness(night-moon). And Elohim called the light Day(sun), and the darkness he called Night(moon and stars). And the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:4-5.

 

And Elohim made(asah-H 6213-past tense) two great lights(sun and moon); the greater light(sun) to rule the day, and the lesser light(moon) to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:16.

 

 

If anyone rules out using the moon because it was "made-asah" on day four, then, you would have to rule out using the sun also, because BOTH the sun and the moon were "made-asah" on day four.

 

This shows a lack of this person's knowledge of Hebrew words of Scriptures, and how they are used in Genesis 1.

 

This person also says, quote " Some things to note:

A. When was YAHWEH'S Sabbath Created?

1. DAYS belong to THE SUN, hence there is Evening and Morning.

Thus saith YAHWEH, which giveth the sun (shemesh) for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon (yerach) and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; YAHWEH of hosts is his name: [Jeremiah 31:35]

 

 

 

 

 

2. Days are counted using THE SUN.

( Really? What about the night? Then why is every  date found recorded in the Scriptures counted in a " lunar month"(H3391; H3394), and counted from the new moon(H2318; H2320) day, and NOT a solar month?

 

3. Days are counted BEFORE the moon exists.

( Really? No they are not. See Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:3-5.).( And how can there be a DAY and a NIGHT without the sun and the moon to mark the first day?).

 

4. The 7th DAY, i.e. by a Solar count, is the Sabbath...and the moon is just 4 DAYS old.

( Really? Is not BOTH the sun and moon made(asah H 6213) on day four??).( And was BOTH the sun and moon not created( Bara-H 1254) in the heavens in the beginning? Genesis 1:1.).

 

For in six DAYS YAHWEH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh DAY: wherefore YAHWEH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. [Exodus 20:11]

( Does these "days" not also include the "nights"?)

 

5. The Seventh DAY had nothing to do with the moon.

( O really? Then why is the seventh day Sabbath called YAH'S first "Mow'ed" H4150" twice in Leviticus 23:1-3, and why does David say He( YAH) uses the moon(H3391; H3394), that was appointed for YAH'S Mow'eds-H4150 in Psalms 104:19??).

 

6. The moon is not used in counting.

( Oh really? Then why is every "date" recorded in the Scriptures a "lunar date" determined from the established new moon(H2318; H2320) day??).

( Also, why are you using the moon to determine the 14th and the 15th days in the first lunar month every year?) 

7. Only seven Solar Days were used to determine Yahweh's Sabbath Rest. 

( Where is your Scriptural proof of this, and where in the Scriptures is a "month" ever called a "solar month"??).

( Would you please tell me, how do you determine the Scriptural seventh day Sabbath by looking at the sun???)

If Messiah was observing Sabbath differently, as in other times calculated by a lunar observance, than the Pharisees, why is there no record of it? 

( No one is saying Messiah did not observe the lunar months! Messiah observed only ONE calendar, the ONE calendar in the heavens Gen.1:14-19 He created in Genesis 1:1.).

 

(Show me in the Scriptures where Messiah observed the Pagan/ Papal/Roman/Gregorian "solar only calendar" Saturday for the Sabbath?)

 

(I thought you said " the moon is not used in counting"? Here you are saying Messiah observed the calculated lunar months! You contradict yourself, and the scriptures!)

 

C. Little known or other ignored facts:
1. How long is a month? 29.53 DAYS.

 ( Do you think the Israelites never knew there were 29 and 30 day months? Read 1 Samuel 20, David knew there were 2 days of new moon, and a 30 day lunar month in advance.

2. When was this discovered? About 800 BCE.

( Well, let's see, Psalms 8:8 speaks about " paths through the seas". This was discovered in the 19th century by a man named Matthew Maury, and even submarines today use these " paths through the seas" for short cuts of travel in the seas. Did the people of old not already know this?)

 

( Also, Job 9:8; Isaiah 42:5; Jeremiah 51:15; Zechariah 12:1 says YAH Elohim " stretches forth the heavens". This was discovered in 1929 by Edwin Hubble. Albert Einstein first proposed the heavens were "static, not expanding" he had to admit he was wrong when Hubble discovered this. Did these men in the scriptures not already know this was declared by Elohim?)

( All this proves the Creator and the scriptures are true!)

( Einstein is considered in the scientific world as the most intelligent man of modern age, yet, YHWH Elohim in the scriptures makes him look stupid.)

3. A lunar month is not evenly divisible by 7, thus "lunation" omits DAYS when counting. (i.e. there can only be 28 DAYS counted in a month because the Sabbath can only be multiples of seven.).

( The lunar month does not "omit" days. Where is your proof of this? 4x7=28 days, so how many Sabbaths are there in a lunar month?)

Let's see, first is "new moon" day, the 1st. day of a lunar month.

N.M.

1st    2   3   4   5   6   7   8th(Sabbath)  9  10  11  12  13  14  15th(Sabbath)  16  17  18  19  20  21  22nd(Sabbath)  23  24  25  26  27  28  29th( Sabbath) 30(new moon first ) 1st( New moon second of the following lunar month).( See 1 Samuel 20, there are no missing days, nor are there extra days in a lunar month either.)

( There are exactly four phases of the moon in each lunar month, and each of these "phases" marks each seventh day Sabbath of the lunar month, and there are exactly seven days between each phase.)

 ( Here below is how this writer points it out.)

 

Quote "" You also notice something interesting from watching the moon. From the time you can just barely see the new crescent until the moon is at its brightest (full moon) takes 14 days. Each quarter (first, second, third, fourth) marks a seven-day period. You decide this is handy – you can count days in a package of seven by looking closely at the moon. Surprise! That’s the way Yahweh created it! "" Unquote. http://www.yrm.org/abccalendar.htm

 

(Even though this person does not believe in a lunar seventh day Sabbath by the moon, he still recognizes there are four phases of seven days by the moon, and it was created this way by YAH.)

Here is other historical evidence. Quote "

“The Hebrew Sabbathon was celebrated at intervals of seven days, corresponding with changes in the moon’s phases…”         Encyclopedia Biblica, 1899 edit., p. 4180

 

“In the time of the earliest prophets, the New Moon stood in the same line with another lunar observance, the Sabbath.  Scribner's Dictionary of the Bible (1898 edit.), p. 521

 

4. When did the 7-day weekly cycle begin? At Creation. It was well known throughout the Roman Empire by the first century BCE, and time pertaining to the weekly cycle has not been
lost since then.

 

( There is no such thing as time being lost, however, TIME HAS BEEN CHANGED, " he shall think to change TIMES and LAWS Daniel 7:25).

( The above number 4 is a lie! The Roman's used an eight day week, called a market week with letters A.B.C.D.E.F.G.H. during the time of Messiah, and this continued until the second century A.D. and it was during this time the seven day planetary week was spread by Mithraism through the Roman Empire, and in 321 AD Constantine revamped the calendar and its seven day planetary week; he bumped up Saturday the first day of the planetary week up to the seventh, and made SUN'S day the first day of the planetary week.).

 

The count is (7x7)+1 =50 [Spiritual Perfection x Spiritual Perfection = Unity] [and: 5 (grace) x 10 (ordinal perfection)]. 

( Where in the Scriptures does it say to count seven Sabbaths complete, and then add 1 day? Or, where does it say to count 50 days from the wave sheaf offering for the count to Feast of Weeks?).

 

c) Messiah observed the Solar Day reckoning, evidenced by cooperation with the Pharisees.
d) Counting Solar Days in a continuous 7 day weekly cycle is the only possibility to have a 50 day count for Pentecost.

( Show me in the Scriptures where a continuous, recurring, 7 day weekly cycle even exists?? You are assuming this! Also, you are using the Roman Catholic count to Feast of Weeks!)

 Again, this person's Hebrew Scriptural knowledge is lacking badly!

Most people do not know that the fifteenth(15th) day of the first lunar month Aviv is BOTH a "feast day" and a seventh day Sabbath every year in the Scriptures.

 

One of the questions asked at the beginning of this article was this: From what lunar date do you determine the Biblical “six work days” in order to know when the Scriptural seventh day Sabbath begins in each lunar month in the Scriptures?

 

 

The only way to find the “six work days” is to first find the “new moon” day, then seven days later is the Scriptural Sabbath.The new moon day is NOT counted as a "workday"; the new moon day is not a Sabbath day(except for the new moon of the seventh month), it is not a seventh day Sabbath, the new moon day is a separate “type” of day. However, the new moon day is a commanded assembly worship day Numbers 10:10; Isaiah 66:22-23; Ezekiel 46:1-4; Colossians 2:16.

 

Beginning at Exodus 12:14 and please notice the words in bold underlined. And this day(15th) shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to YHWH throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day(15th) until the seventh day(22nd), that soul shall be cut off from Israel. And in the first day(15th) there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day(22nd) there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day(15th) have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day(15th) in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

 

In the  first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. …And it came to pass the selfsame day(15th), that YHWH did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies. And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day(15th), in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand YHWH brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten. This day(15th) came ye out in the month Abib. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day(22nd) shall be a feast to YHWH.

 

 

Here below are the days laid out in a calendar format.

 

N.M.

     1st  2  3  4  5  6  7  8th( Sabbath)  9  10th( lambs selected or purchased)  11  12  13  14th( Passover)  15th( first day F.U.B. and seventh day Sabbath=Holy convocation) 16th  17  18  19  20  21st( last day of feast) 22nd( Sabbath=Holy Convocation)  23  24  25  26  27  28  29th( Sabbath) 30( new moon) 1st( new moon second month).

 

 

There is no "chag-feast=Hebrew H 2282" on the 21st day of the first lunar month Aviv in the entirety of the Scriptures! The "seventh day" referred to in the above Scriptures, is referring to the 15th and the 22nd days, which are the "seventh days of the week"! Anyone who knows the Hebrew Scriptures knows this!

 

 

The 21st day is the "sixth day of the week" and the 22nd is " the seventh day of the week". Remember the manna lesson in Exodus 16 in the second lunar month? Manna was rained from the 16th 17th 18th 19th 20th 21st( no manna on the 22nd-seventh day Sabbath). Here below is the "second lunar month" of Exodus 16.

 

N.M.

     1st  2  3  4  5  6  7  8th(Sabbath)  9  10  11  12  13  14  15th(Sabbath) 16th( 1st day of week)  17th( 2nd day ) 18th(3rd day)  19th(4th day) 20th(5th day)  21st(6th day)  22nd(7th day=Sabbath) 23 24

 

 

Notice it above! We are told the "holy convocations" are on the 15th which is a "seventh day" and the "seventh day" is on the 22nd day of the first lunar month Aviv! Why do most people misunderstand this?

 

 

Now, notice that from Exodus 12:14 until Exodus 13:6 that the 15th day of the first lunar month is mentioned approximately eight (8) times. Then we read “ Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters. And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which YHWH did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt. And it shall be for a sign(H226) unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that YHWH’S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath YHWH brought thee out of Egypt. Exodus 13:7-9.

 

Notice the 15th day of the first lunar month is called a “sign”(H226) unto thee, and a memorial. Numbers 33:3-4 says, “ And they departed from Rameses in the first month ,on the fifteenth day(15th) of the first month; on the morrow (15th) after the Passover(14th) the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians. For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which YHWH had smitten among them: upon their gods also YHWH executed judgments.

 

 

Then, Exodus 31:13 says,

Speak H1696 thou also unto the children H1121 of Israel, H3478 saying, H559 Verily H389 my sabbaths H7676 ye shall keep: H8104 for it is a sign H226 between me and you throughout your generations; H1755 that ye may know H3045 that I am YHWH H3068 that doth sanctify H6942 you.

 

 

Exodus 31:16-17 says,

Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign H226 between me and the children H1121 of Israel H3478 for ever: H5769 for in six H8337 days H3117 YHWH H3068 made H6213 heaven H8064 and earth, H776 and on the seventh H7637 day H3117 he rested, H7673 and was refreshed. H5314

 

 

Deuteronomy 5:12-15 says,

Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as YHWH thy Elohim hath commanded thee. Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of YHWH thy Elohim in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou. And remember  that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that YHWH thy Elohim brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore YHWH thy Elohim commanded thee to keep the Sabbath day.

 

The fifteenth(15th ) day of the first lunar month is determined from the new moon day every year; it is the first day of the feast of unleavened bread; it is also a sign (H226 owth) day, it is a memorial day to remember, it is a Moed(H4150), it is a seventh day Sabbath, and it is this day and the selfsame day that YHWH thy Elohim brought the children of Israel out of Egypt through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore YHWH commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.

 

 

All the Sabbaths both annually and weekly, are lunar dates used in the context of a lunar month, the seventh day Sabbath included, and both yearly and weekly Sabbaths are YAH’S “mow’eds”  (H4150-Appointed times) Genesis 1:14; Leviticus 23:1-3; Psalms 104:19, and are determined by the moon(H3391; H3394), and determined from the new moon(H 2318; H2320) day.  Fact of Scriptures,  either repent, or die the second death.
